Raequan Williams – Chicago DePaul Defensive Tackle
Height, weight: 6-foot-5, 275 pounds
Commitment Date: December 19, 2014
Why Michigan State: “My family wanted me to go there, and it was just a great place to be. And, they are winning right now and that is a big thing. You want to win.”
Williams came on the scene strong for Michigan State in the fall and Michigan State also came on strong. The big defensive tackle became a priority for the Spartans and ultimately picked them over Iowa and Arizona State.
He is a large person on the interior defensive line, but plays with a high level of pursuit and an even higher level of strength.
While MSU brought in a handful of interior defensive linemen last year, Williams has a lot of talent and could have a shot at seeing the field – especially since MSU could be starting two seniors at defensive tackle.
